Y’all, get on the phone. Especially, especially if you have a Republican senator. Call the Senate switchboard – (202) 224-3121 – and request your senator (find your senator here). Tell them to vote no on the Senate tax bill.
This bill is so, so bad, you guys. It’s gonna cause a you a great big tax increase in a few years and if you live in a higher tax state it’ll cause you a big tax increase right now because it wipes out the deductions you get for state and local taxes. It’ll explode the deficit by 1.4 trillion in 10 years. It includes language that grants personhood to unborn fetuses, making it harder for women to get abortions. It drastically cuts Medicaid and Medicare. It eliminates the individual mandate, which will collapse Obamacare.
Call your senators, people.
